A world where we can all prove our identity and eligibility anywhere, using a simple universally trusted ID
To create a community for all those involved in the ID sector to connect and collaborate. Together we create the rules, tools and confidence to support the acceptance of universally trusted IDs and eligibility information
How we Achieve this:
We are uniquely dedicated to ID Trust. We are a membership organisation, offering education, information and collaboration around the topic of universally trusted identity.
We bring together buyers of ID Services (reliant organisations, or relying parties) with ID Service organisations such as tech vendors, consultancies, along with regulators and market influencers to work together to drive adoption of ID Trust.
Our papers and guides form the bedrock of Trust Frameworks that supports the creation and use of inter-operable, universally trusted identities.
OIX has a wide programme of events, thought-leadership and working groups. Members access a suite of resources including support for Pilot Projects and Business Case Development.
Through the OIX Guide to Trust Frameworks and associated Papers,members build an understanding of the wider ecosystem required tocreate and rely upon trusted identities.
The OIX Directory explains where member services sit within this ecosystem.
